Reflections on tinkering and making at the #Ecsite2017 MakerSpace

Throughout the Ecsite conference, the MakerSpace has been filled with tinkering and making activities, inspiring creations and examples of past projects. While we've explored these experiences as a learner, this pop-up MakerSpace also gives us the chance to reflect upon the elements and qualities of MakerSpaces using our specific environment as a concrete example.

In this session, we'll zoom out and hear from museum professionals who will use the Ecsite MakerSpace as a case study to examine different aspects of making and tinkering work. We'll have a conversation about these qualities and share tools for reflection that can help us design spaces and workshops that suit different needs and programmes.
